Kitawa Wemo, the founder of MAMA Ventures, an impact venture builder in Nairobi, Kenya talks to us about how she helps startups build sustainable and impactful businesses.
We discuss the path that led her from her undergrad studies in environmental health to building startup ecosystems and what she has learnt about successful startups. We also discuss the various options for getting support for your startup outside of hiring fulltime staff, the pertinent questions to ask potential co-founders, and the challenge of holding people accountable when partnerships are started on loosely defined terms.
Kitawa also shares how she works with different organisations within the startup ecosystem to drive innovation, motivate responsible leadership, and connect business performance to impact.
